|New partner (INTEL) & 30% owner one As of Friday 1/3/2015|
Vuzix Corporation- Vuzix - The Company Vuzix Corporation is pioneer in manufacturing Video Eye-wear and personal display devices for the mobile video, entertainment, defense and commercial markets.The company is a Rochester N.Y. based company. A backyard company for myself. I am currently a small shareholder. I first knew about this company when I invested in KOPIN, many years ago. Back then, I didn't give the company any consideration due to the out of whack valuation at the time. However some things have changed. The company recently underwent a big reverse split. IMO an indication the company wants to attract more serious capital and investors. I've already heard a high tech analyst say that 2014 will be the year of the gadgets. With Google being a big well capitalized player in this field. Competition is sure to be fierce. Last I saw, even KOPN, which I am still a shareholder, ls looking to compete. Just maybe the company can find some more risk capital and new partners like the recent Uvex PR. IMO With some past KODAK connections and Kodak's access of technology and patents. Kodak is a distinct possibility. I also think Google itself & Marc Andreessen brings creditability to this visionary product. However It remains to be seen if Vuzix can effectively compete before it needs more capital. Please note this company company is still a highly speculative risk takers only pick. Expect extreme volatility, Buzz & Hype. I will try to update any progress on the company. The board is open for civil discussion both + & - .
RE:Marc Andreessen is clearly blown away by Google Glass and is ready to fund some awesome Glass startups.
He's called Google's new wearable computing device "magical."
It's not just a fancy gadget, Glass is going to be a game changer for certain industries like health care, the cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz said in an interview on Bloomberg West.
